Hello, I am Shreejith Nair. Today people know me as a fitness enthusiast; American Council on Exercise (ACE) certified personal trainer and an ACE certified Lifestyle & Weight Management Consultant.
But not too long ago I used to be a chubby guy with low self-esteem. I was born with a clubfoot. Walking was challenging, and to run like normal kids was far from my imagination. All I wanted was to be able to walk like a normal kid. So I had a special shoe designed for my needs. Growing up was hard. To see the other kids run around and to realize I could never do it was very disheartening.
However, I didn’t let that bring me down. At age 12, I gathered all the courage and decided to give Lawn tennis a shot. Now you may ask, how can a kid who can barely walk play tennis?? I always strongly believed in the ol cliché that ‘Your body hears everything your mind says’.
I took baby steps, sure they were painful but I did not give up. A year later I played my first tournament and limped my way to the 3rd round. I felt like I was on top of the world!
At 15, I underwent a surgery to correct my clubfoot. The surgery was successful and had me wearing normal shoes. But it’s during the recovery period that I picked up unhealthy eating practices. I went from being 70kgs to a unhealthy 108kg slob.
Due to my unhealthy practices I developed supra ventricular tachycardia (Irregular heartbeat). This is when I decided that things had to change. I took control. I started working out and followed a healthy diet. I saw my body transform. I got addicted to seeing results. It was an incredible feeling. Now I understand why my career as a game developer did not excite me. I had found my true passion.
My passion to guide & support clients toward their fitness goals is driven by the enjoyment of seeing them reap the benefits. From losing weight, feeling less stressed, to being happier & healthier. When I hear these wonderful results I feel like I am doing what I was meant to be doing. So it keeps me on top of my game, whereby, I want to strive to give the best service as possible.
I believe exercise is so much more than simply an activity – it opens up a world of possibilities that are entirely up to the individual. It builds confidence and happiness, especially as you reach your goals and see your own progress. In my training I strongly believe that there is no ‘one size fits all’ technique, instead each client gets their own unique program that fits them and their needs. I am here to help in any way I can so that you reach your fitness goals and exceed your expectations. You’ll have a coach you are accountable to, someone that will help, and guide you through this next level of your fitness journey.
